Lakewood High School
Every single day and every single class period Mr. Mirante stands at his door and greets his students with a handshake. His philosophy is simple: if he can make a connection with a student they will succeed in his class. Students look forward to his class because he makes it fun intriguing and original. Who doesn’t want to karaoke on Fridays or play in class trivia based off of the novels we have read? Mr. Mirante tells his students a quote of the day and life tip of the day every single day. Students look forward to this inspiration and will bug Mr. Mirante if he does not say them. He truly cares about his students by listening to what they say relating to what they say and most importantly? remembering. Its the little things Mirante does in class that makes him truly one of a kind.
